From Our Home To Yours
Hello! My name is Laura and this is my family. We have been breeding Cockapoos for 4 years now and we love it more and more with each litter. We live in the middle of a beautiful 90+ acre farm, located just west of NYC and next to the Delaware Water Gap. We currently have just three pups in our home, Stasia, Skyla and Såfina. The rest are loved and pampered in their guardian homes, an extension of our family. Our guardian homes are all close friends and family. All puppies are raised in our home or in our trusted guardian homes and are given much love and affection from the day they are born. We follow the Puppy Culture program for all of our babies. Our dogs are never placed in kennels and are each a part of our family. Our endeavor in breeding these beautiful multi generational cockapoos is to spread joy to other families by raising beautiful, happy hypoallergenic fur babies.
One thing we love here is forming friendships with our buyers so that they know and trust us and we know and trust that our fur babies are going to a good home. We send lots of pictures to our buyers from the day their newest family member is born! We like to affectionately refer to your purchase of one of our puppies an “open adoption” and truly love when our families return the favor and continue to share photos back with us through the years. Last summer we had our first ever CutiePoo family reunion and we all loved it so much, we hope to continue this new tradition for years to come. It’s so important to us that your family know that we are a breeder who will continue to be available as a resource for your family.
What we offer our buyers/ The Stasia’s Cutiepoos experience
After emailing us the question from the Questions We Have for You page, we will speak on the phone and get to know one another and discuss what you are looking for in one of our pups. Once your name is on the waiting list you will here from me as soon as the mother of your future puppy goes into heat. That is when we can forecast when your puppy will be going home to you. Be sure to follow us on instagram for pictures and videos of pregnant mama! I will let everyone know as soon as mama is in labor, I do TRY to live stream the birth, however, if I am in a guardians home, for privacy reasons, I cannot always do so. From that point on I do my best to fill my instagram stories with photos and videos of the pups. Capturing all of their mile markers such as, opening ears and eyes, learning to walk, first time drinking goats milk, wet mush food, etc. And of course, nightly tuck ins with the kids! We believe seeing your pup grow from such a small age, helps you (the buyer) feel bonded with your pup before you even pick your pup up. We love every bit of the experience of watching them grow and learn and love being able to share that with our buyers. Puppy selection is as at 6 weeks. Due to Covid we now have puppy selection via Zoom or Facetime.
At 3 weeks old I begin pellet training your pup, this is laying the foundation for ease in house breaking your pup when you bring him home. At 4 weeks old I begin adding space to their pen and put a small puppy crate in with them as a soft place to lay and snuggle, the door is always kept open. We begin crate training at 6 weeks old by closing the crates with 2 or more pups in a crate at a time for an hour or two. Conditioning them to not fear their crate. By 7 weeks they each have their own crates and I begin crating them for part of the night. They now also go outside every 3-4 hours to go potty during the day.
Each pup leaves us with their own crate, a blanket and toy that they have slept on for weeks and also some samples of Nuvet. Nuvet is an amazing vitamin we begin giving the pups at 4 weeks old.
Payments and Purchasing Your Puppy
Payments are to be made in 3 increments.
Wait-list Deposit: Your first payment of $250 will be taken at the time of your application being approved for one of our puppies and we both agree one of our puppies is a good fit for you. This deposit guarantees you a puppy from one of our future litters. If we do not have a puppy for you from the upcoming litter it is fully refundable or transferable to a future litter. Otherwise the deposit is non refundable.
Puppy Hold Deposit: Once the puppies are born and we can ensure you a furbaby from the current litter, an additional deposit of $250 is to be made within 1 week of the birth of the puppies. Making your puppy deposit a total of $500. This deposits is non-refundable and will be applied to the total purchase price of your puppy. Deposits ARE transferable to another litter. No monies will be refunded under any conditions. A deposit holds all sales of your puppy.
Final Puppy Payment: The remaining balance of $2500 is due when your puppy is 6 weeks old.
*Please note* Stasias CutiePoos reserves the right to have first and/or second pick from all litters.
Scheduled visits from our buyers are welcomed. However, please understand that young puppies are susceptible to illness and the health of our dogs is our top priority. Because of this, we do not allow visits until after the pups are 6 weeks old and have had their first vaccinations. Upon entering the house, you will be asked to remove your shoes and wash your hands. This may seem excessive, but illnesses like parvo can be deadly to our puppies and, with so many families wanting to visit, we must take precautions. We also ask that you not visit other breeders/pet stores/ dog parks/sick friends etc. before coming to our home. Please reschedule if you, or someone traveling with you, is not feeling well. Human ailments, such as strep, can be passed on to dogs. We must put the safety of our puppies first and foremost.
If you are too far to travel for a visit, rest assured, we will send you MANY pictures, videos and updates on the puppy you choose so that you may get to see and know all about him or her.
Are You A Good Match?
Of course your puppy will experience some stress and emotional upheaval having just left his family. Please be sensitive to this. Your baby will need some time, comfort and patient reassurance during this adjustment. You may find that your puppy sleeps better in his crate, next to your bed, where he can see and hear you those first few nights. You will also find that he needs more of your time and attention. Cockapoos are not a breed to be left alone all day, particularly when they are puppies. They are family dogs and they require family time.
As our puppies depend on us to find good matches for them in regards to their new families, we allow 1 week in your home for you to find if your puppy is a good fit for you and your family. You may return your puppy within 7 days. However, upon returning, you will forfeit 50% of your total purchase price. Please review our Terms of Sale and Health Guarantee BEFORE sending your deposit or full payment.
If you cannot keep your puppy at any time thereafter, he or she is welcome back in our home. There is no reason, or excuse, for one of our precious pups to ever end up in a shelter! However, there is no refund for return after the first week. Please contact us if you cannot keep your puppy.
